By Jason Fitzpatrick on April 16th, 2012

This interactive population density maps makes it easy to see where the high density pockets of humanity exist around the world. Slide from 5 people per square mile to 500 and watch the map melt away.

Courtesy of designer Derek Watkins, the map makes it dead simple to visualize the pockets of high-density human populations around the world. Hit up the link below to try the map out or read his blog entry on the map to learn more about how he constructed it.
